A must in La Cruz. A 3 dollar taxi ride from Gran Sirenis for an amazing dinner. The daily specials on the board out front are the best deals. 3 course meals for 325 pesos. Fresh fish was some of the best I've ever had.

I am only in this area once a year, at most, but I can always count on Masala to provide a delicious dining experience. My friends enjoyed the coconut shrimp and the ravioli, and I loved the large scallops. Glad to see this restaurant still shines.

Our family of 5 ate at Masala for Christmas Dinner. It was a set menu, and everything we ordered was very tasty…especially the Traditional Turkey Dinner with a twist!

We love the food, service, and ambience. We've eaten here for a number of years and have never been disappointed. Always top quality ingredients, properly prepared, and very well presented.

Our family went to Masala for our final meal in Mexico. We had a great time and the food was very good. My son and I shared the mussels in broth and it was delicious. The others had frutti de mar and loved it. They had a full bar and made a great margarita and had nice tequila choices. The... More

Had the catch of the day. Was good, but pricey for the area. Ambiance, etc. doesn't warrant the price.

My wife and I ate here Dec 27, 2016. Food was excellent. Wine list was hard to work with and a couple of other minor issues. Overall well worth a visit for a higher end meal in this rustic town. Great staff and wonderful live solo classical guitar.

Stopped in as we were looking for a new place ... what a great surprise loved everything and it was pretty decent price wise! The desert chocolate mousse is out of this world and the crusted fish of the day that happened to be mahi mahi today were great!!! Can't wait to come back !

We had a group of 7 that ate at Masala to celebrate a birthday. Masalas offers fine food with live music and great service at a very reasonable price. The service was attentive, and the staff even sang happy birthday to the celebrant. I enjoyed a well presented pork chop while others at the table enjoyed fish and pasta dishes.
